6:00pm
telling you about a tasty, healthy snack. thanks for watching. i'm bill o'reilly. please, remember, the spin stop its right here because we are definitely looking out for you. >> sean: and this is a fox news alert. there is chaos in cirrhot tonight on the 11th year anniversary of 9/11. thousands of egyptians scaled the walls of the u.s. embassy and replaced the american flag with a black, islamist flag. the a.p. is report that this replacement flag is similar to a banner used by al qaeda and that some in the crowd were chanting, quote, we are osama. they were protesting a u.s.-produced film that attacks the prophet mohammed. there are no american injuries or casualties. this is the first time ever that the u.s. embassy in cairo was breached. we will continue to follow this development out of the region.
6:01pm
much more coming up on this program. but first, we begin way "hannity" cable exclusive. bob woodward is the author of a brand-new book that has all of washington talking, called "the price of politics" and it takes you into the negotiating rooms of the capitol and the white house and exposes how the president tried and failed to restore the american economy. now this book raises some very serious questions about the president's ability to look beyond politics and lead the nation during times of great consequence. and here to talk about that and much more is the man himself, the author of "the price of politics," available in bookstores everywhere. bob woodward. good to see you. i read the book cover to cover. i want every american to read it for this reason -- it should make everybody angry at the level of dysfunction at a time -- you say, the american people have never had any real knowledge of just how severe
6:02pm
this was. >> i mean, it was the kind of crisis that took the country's economy to the cliff. president obama, when i interviewed him for the book said they were days away from having $5 billion in the u.s. treasury. that's it. now, that's half a day's federal spending. if you think about it, to let that happen -- not just the president, but the republicans -- could have said -- sent shockwaves through the country, could have done things to the american economy that tim geithner, the treasury secretary said would have been worse than the 1930s depression. >> sean: i mean, it's so dysfunctional. it's far worse than we ever said. here's what really bothers me in all of this. we have 25 million un- and under-employed americans. one in six americans in poverty. 49 million americans on food stamps in this country. we are really -- and nearly $6
6:03pm
trillion at the end of obama's first term in new debt. this is be a game anymore. this is about as serious a crisis as we have faced since the great depression and getting worse. >> and this was last year. they fixed it by postponing everything. >> sean: yeah. >> no cut, no tax increases. no sensible alinement of the federal budget. so we are going to in december or january be back in the same mess and the federal government is going to be in the position where there is no congressional authorization to pay its bills. now, this as you will know, this is a federal government that borrows $1 trillion a year. we have got -- i mean-- more. >> in the book, as you went through it, tim geithner, to his credit, who is running around saying, fire! we have got to fix this! we are going to do potentially
6:04pm
something that will be indelible and last for generations. it is going to screw up everything. and when you get into the details, you realize that it could have been fixed. >> sean: yeah. >> quite frankly, i think bill clinton or ronald reagan would have sat down and said, we can't let this happen. >> sean: you go into detail in the book about how ronald reagan -- remember, i don't know if you mention tip o'neill, but you talk about his liaisons to congress. both me and bill clinton, on the phone late at night. they had relationships with congress. that's know the case with president obama. >> that's right. and the white house was saying, oh, this is something -- my conclusion. it's in the book, larry summers, the economic czar for obama in the white house for the first two years. and he says, obama has no feeling for the game of politics, no sense of the joy of the game. and in fact does not like these
6:05pm
people up in congress. and so, he's cut off. he has not got the sort of phone call relationship, personal relationship where he can call somebody up and say, look, let's -- let's do this. let's do a deal that's in the larger interest of the country. >> sean: on the brink, they were going to have $5 billion in the treasury -- not trillion. $5 billion. we are basically out of money. >> yes, dry. >> sean: done. finished. we are right up to the brink here. the president doesn't have a good relationship with congress. behind the scenes, you describe him meeting with the speaker of the house, john boehner, the cigarette summit. >> boehner said, here obama is having iced tea and chewing nicorettes and boehner's having a merlot and a cigarette. >> sean: they are trying to get this deal together. >> to their credit. >> sean: i will agree with that.
6:06pm
to their credit, except, i wouldn't have liked that as a conservative. barron was agreeing to do something that the tea party would have had a fit about, which is raising, what? $800 billion in taxes and obama wants $400 billion more at last minute. >> yes, boehner's argument that $800 billion over 10 years in new revenue through tax reform, which is what ronald reagan did in 1986 and actually lowered the income tax rate down to 28%. it's hard. but it's been done. and it was one way to -- to get out of this. but you are absolutely right. it's the president who comes in and says, oh, we need $400 billion more in some form or his position is, he offered it, hey, john-- at the last minute. >> kind of last minute. when you get into the nitty-gritty dill tac, you
6:07pm
wonder, well, why would he do that? he did it because six senators came out with a new plan and david plouffe, the senior political adviser in the white house, the man who was obama's 2008 campaign manager says, oh, wait a minute, this is a watershed moment. this will give boehner more maneuvering room because some republicans are calling for more... revenue. and the congressional liaison in the white house tells the president, look, if you don't do this, you are going to be seen as the weakest president in all of mankind. and in that kind of environment, the president impulsivelily goes out, endorses the plan and boehner is trying to -- go ahead. >> sean: you know what infuriated me as all of this is going on, the president's fixation on one issue. that this can't come up again before the election. i think the one thing that might
6:08pm
have helped, if it did come up before the election because it would be self-serving at that moment that they might have the pressure of getting something done. and i thought, that bothered me that it was -- he was thinking about electoral politics while we are on the brink of bankruptcy. >> that's one side of the argument. the other side of the argument is, can you imagine having this kind of a crisis in the middle of a presidential campaign? >> sean: might get something done. >> but you know what happened last year, getting something done was postponing everything to 2013. they did nothing -- not this pain fl at the time. >> sean: that's the story here for the american people. they didn't have the courage, the ability to navigate through the tough times and they pushed it up to 2013. you know what the cbo is projecting, a very bad year next year. >> a government recession. >> sean: it's the most predictable economic crisis we have ever had. you had fascinating insights
6:09pm
about paul ryan. i will ask but that when we come back. more with bob woodward and breaking news from egypt. protesters storming the u.s. embassy in cairo. more dramatic pictures of this very volatile situation. and dana perino, juan williams and america's mayor, giuliani, will be here as we mark the anniversary of the september 11 attacks, straight ahead.
6:10pm
6:11pm
6:12pm
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity." tonight, i will be joined by karl rove, dana perino and juan williams and giuliani. we begin with the author of the book, the price of politics, bob woodward. have you funny anecdotes -- he's 28. >> he's elected and he goes to the house floor and they won't
6:13pm
let him on because they say, oh, you are a staffer. he has to get one of those pins and get people to know him. also what was interesting, as soon as he went to congress, he's a research guy. and he said, how due do a -- how do do you a good job as a congressman? he went to, of all people, bernie frank and took him to breakfast and said, what's the key? and barney frank said, one -- learn one thing, learn it well. don't be a generalist. and he did-- he did! >> the budget andimony and our finances. and probably in a very clear way, the most important issue in the presidential campaign we now face. >> sean: you spend a lot of time at georgetown. this is when the president said, republicans want kids with autism and down's syndrome and the elderly to fend for themselves. paul ryan is sitting in the front row.
6:14pm
>> right. the president said he didn't know. this was something somebody in his congressional relations. i believe him. and there is evidence that he did not-- jack ryan by the way. >> he called him jack ryan. the clancy character. when i asked the president about this a couple of months ago, to his credit, he said, that was a mistake. we should not have done that. and he is quite right. ryan was -- and the others were, wait a minute. he's poisoned the well. we are supposed to be able to work something out and he has me there and sticks his finger in both eyes. >> sean: it was a bad moment. but i would argue -- and this is the political side of me -- so let me put that hat on. >> i understand it. >> sean: i would argue that this president does that a lot. kids with autism, down's syndrome, the elderly to fend for themselves. i am a conservative. no conservative advocates that. even bill clinton regurgitated
6:15pm
that at the dnc convention. but when you listen to the president, you watch him over time, he does this all the time. here's what i don't understand. how does he explain what you detail in this book about this crisis, his lack of leadership, how does he explain $5.4 trillion in debt when he said george bush was irresponsible for $4 trillion in 8 years. we took a credit card to the bank of china. he blames the republicans. he blames john boehner. he said, boehner was the one -- and he's right -- as you well know, there is a war going on in the republican party-- boehner was there with a deal that i wouldn't have liked as a conservative and obatcha adds $4 and00 billion to the deal? >> it was for political reasons. it derailed the whole thing. now whether it would have worked, we don't know. it's for history to speculate.
6:16pm
at the same time, i spent the last four years studying obama with this policy. i know you are not going to agree with this. genuine progressive in him. there is also a genuine blue dog, fiscal conservative-- where?! >> where? >> sean: $4 tril whereon in debt?! >> yes. but let me tell thu. he early on in all of these budget negotiations, he said to kent conrad, the democratic senator, he said, look, fifix this i am willing to be a one-term president-- -- >> when i talked to obama, he said, i am willing to lose an election to get this right? >> the rhetoric is there. >> it is this kind of engagement, this sense of, i have got to fix this. i have to--
6:17pm
but wait a minute. in your book -- i don't remember the words you used, but you said he failed. >> yes. he did. boehner fail audio. >> sean: but he could have -- he could have made this happen. >> but the president is the leader of the country. and this is -- i tell you that you know this and the conservative knows this, any liberal knows this. if we don't fix this, we are screwed as a country. now, it should be the biggest issue in the presidential campaign. and it is not coming up. why? >> sean: look, i want people to read it because -- if they do, they will be angrier, if it's possible at government in general. on both sides in this sense. but it is a very revealing, insightful book. thanks for being with us. coming up, democrats are touting some newly released polls. but karl rove is here to expose the hidden truth behind the numbers. and later, continued coverage of the breaking news out of cairo,
6:18pm
where protesters have stormed the u.s. embassy. what will president obama do about it? the american flag was burned on the screets in egypt. and rudy guiliani, dana perino and juan williams, all coming up, straight ahead.

6:21pm
>> sean: barack obama have been in overdrive, trying to convince you, the voters that last week's dnc was a huge success. they have been touting a few skewed poles in a lame attempt to prove their point. but a brand-new survey pokes holes in the false narrative because among likely voters, barack obama holds a 1-point lead over mitt romney, clearly within the margin of error. no big bounce. and what is more tell from this poll, among the same sample,
6:22pm
independents are flocking to governor romney, 54-43 percent. we should note that democrats were over sampled in this case by 10 percentage point, compared to republicans. i can guarantee team obama will not be sending this poll to its supporters. joining me now, the architect, karl rove. before i get to the polls, we have important developments out of cairo. how the president could have been so wrong, we saw, quote, this democracy movement in tahrir square. we see, there it is, the american flag being ripped down from the u.s. embassy walls. another apology tour on the way, from the obama administration. and so far, they have done nothing except tell netanyahu that they probably won't be meeting with him in coming days. your reaction? could this impact the campaign? >> yeah. well, actually, they did do
6:23pm
something. they put out an atrocious statement that seemed to decry -- this is generated by some coptic christian exiles from egypt, putting together a video. what the administration's statement from the department of state seemed to do was seemed to blame the coptic crit christians for an expression of their religious freedom and say people shouldn't be making and abusing muslims and shouldn't be making things like this and abusing muslim it's i thought it was an appalling statement. there is no excuse n. no excuse for invading u.s. territory, which that embassy is, and tearing down the american flag-- wait a minute. that flag, it said, there is no god but allah, the a.p. says the protesters were largely ultra-conservative islamists. >> right. where was the egyptian
6:24pm
government? could you imagine what would happen if a group of americans overran the egyptian embassy wall and tore down the egyptian flag and hung up a church flag of some sort? i mean, the world would be up in tarp arms. this administration eye repeat -- you don't think they did anything -- go read the atrocious statement from the state department. it was appalling! it seemed to blame the coptic christians for being responsible for this one. it was religious -- muslim religious extremists and with little effort by the central government in egypt to keep them from committing this act. >> sean: and the very day that the obama administration declines a request by benjamin netanyahu to meet with obama, saying they may be in ohio campaigning. that's more important, though we are on the brink of a showdown between iran and israel. moving on. we will more in the next segment on this. very specifically, you read the polls, there was a short bounce.
6:25pm
short lived. it's over this. poll tells, i think, a bigger story than anything -- anyone else in the media's pointing out here, especially among independents and over sampling democrats, 10 points. >> yeah. look, we are going to have this problem for a while here. these are polls that have come out in the last two or three days. washington post/abc, 33 democrat, 37 republican, 36 independent. the same day that cnn, 50.4 pnt democrat, 45.2% republican, 4.2% independents and rasmussen, 34, 35.4 and 30.5. now, which is it?! a gallup poll with the democrats with an 8-point advantage and pew with an 11-point damage. we have a bunch of polls, pew and cnn which over sampled democrats or in the case of cnn
6:26pm
appeared to grossly underestimate independents. that's why we ought to be careful. i like the real clear politics average to put it in some perspective. but we should not kid ourselves, if these poles give us a sense of scientific precision, which they simply dont have. >> sean: reading all the polls, real clear political average, this race is too close to call. so how does romney strategeically close the deal, in your opinion? >> yeah. i think he closes the deal with two things. at the convention, he dialed up the explanation of who he was. and mitt romney and ann romney both did that. i think ann romney in particular did a good job on it. now mitt romney and paul ryan, while keeping some of the personal information coming, need to put a specific focus on the five elements of the plan to help the mitted class. more american energy. trade that works for america. making sure every american has
6:27pm
the skills to succeed and most important of all, championing small business and creating jobs they have more meat. they need to put them in wors that the ordinary american gets and go to the battleground states and talk about them. he has a plan, reforming our tax code, restrain spending. cutting the deficit, having a plan to put the budget into balance. they matter, but he needs to lay them out. >> sean: does the president's narrative -- this was far worse than i thought, even though he ran on the worst economy since the great depression, so maybe he was telling us we had a depression, but we didn't measure t. does the narrative work -- i stopped this thing. this was going to be worse than i thought. then he explained the $6 trillion in new debt in one term and fewer americans working. can that work? >> yeah. if you leave it unrebutted, but
6:28pm
don't leave it unrebutted. obama's handling the economy, 34% think it's a major reason to support him, 31% think it's a major reason to oppose him dis. he understand how it build a small business? 48 say yes, 48 say no. for romney, 66 say no and 28 say no. this is the really interesting one. they asked, do you think the economy's gotten better or worse or the same? better, 32. worse 32. same, 24. you have 77 people saying it's where it was when he came in or worse. do you think obama deserves a lot of blame or some blame for the fact that the economy hasn't improved? 71% say he ought to receive a lot of blame. 37, or some blame, 34 for the economy not improving. only 29% say he should have a little, or none at all, 14. so the economy remains a big stumbling block for this guy. if romney pounds away, saying, mr. president, when you say that
6:29pm
you misled us and -- you couldn't get it done in four years, that's not what you said at the beginning. that's not good enough for the american people? >> the architect, karl rove. 56 days to go. it doesn't get any better than this, karl. it's the fourth quarter. all right. coming up, more on the disturbing images out of egypt tonight. remember, remember when president obama promised to bring comm democracy to egypt. >> it will be the policy of the united states to promote reform across the region and to support transitions through democracy. that effort begins in egypt. >> sean: how could he be so wrong? we'll have more on the american flag being deserated on this, the 11th anniversary of 9/11. how could they be so wrong? more shocking video and we remember 9/11 with former new york city mayor rudy guiliani.

more of the moral courage that this president is so well known for on display. juan williams and the author of the brand-new book, "divider in chief: the fraud of hope and change." i got to blurb this book. very proud of t. it's a terrific new read and book. >> thanks? >> so, let me start here. the president's in a tough spot. the president, he gave $1.5 billion to the muslim brotherhood and pushed mubarak out and they are raiding our embassy and the pathetic statement, blaming coptic christians and he can't go against the teachers unions. >> it is an offensive statement, by the way. to say that we should be worried about the feelings of muslims. how about christians and gays and jews all over the world -- [overlapping dialogue] >> he says, one of his fundamental responsibilities is do protect the feelings of muslims. this is offensive. but, sean, i think the president
6:46pm
is going to jump head long into this. hawm-bo knows he has to. he has to continue to stir the pot. he will say that the republicans, mitt romney and paul ryan, are assaulting the teachers unions, like he did in wisconsin, whenever it benefits him -- noose? >> that's why he won't get into it. he has already taken a position. let me bring in juan williams. where is president courage you? know, here he is, 76,000 dollars, the teachers make, the average fortune in chicago makes $45 grand and 45% of the kids don't graduate inform fourth grade, only 15% are profit proficient in reading. >> i know this situation intimately because i did a video online with education activist, kyle olson, called tale of two missions. and it tells the story. teacher evaluations have become
6:47pm
critical. so you have democrats, like hawm emanuel, now saying, we have to have teacher evaluations. emanuel says we need longer days and has offered them more pay. they are making over $70,000 a year-- $76. >> he is offering increases and said he would provide more teachers -- hire more teachers to cover the longer days. this is all part what havearnie duncan, president obama's education secretary-- where's obama. >> education reform. >> sean: where is he?! >> he is right there. >> sean: he hasn't said a word. jay carney said the president's not going to take sides in this. >> this is a local strike. but i have to tell you, everything you see from president obama's education supportr department -- [overlapping dialogue] >> sean. >> 2007, he said he would march in the picket lines if workers' rights were denied. >> this president -- thank you -- >> visome comfortable shoes at home. if it's hot outside, i have a
6:48pm
hat. if it's cold outside, i have a jacket. but if you are being denied your rights, i don't care whether i enemy the united states senate or in the white house, i will make sure that i am marching with you on the picket lines because that's what i believe in, making sure the workers have rights! you have a partner with me! >> sean: he can't criticize the teachers union, he needs their money. >> he dis. the democrats are going to say, it's a local matter, that the president can't get involved. please! this president has jumped into every mess from louis gates to the beer sum to it trayvon martin, again and again. he gets involved, only when tell benefit him. >> sean: where is he?! he gave $1.5 billion taxpayer dollars to the muslim brotherhood. islamists just hit our embassy and took our flag down and put an al qaeda flag up there! where is he?! >> excuse me. excuse me. i believe that the bush administration and the obama administration-- george bush's fault!
6:49pm
>> freedom agenda. >> sean: bush's fault! bush -- this was never pro-democracy, juan! this was also the muslim brotherhood was going to be in power! >> this president has been steadfast in supporting in promoting islam, he does not coo. >> come okate. he is not promoting -- >> he never promotes christians -- >> he is not i. absolutely, again and again [overlapping dialogue] >> he is promoting america's national -- just a moment, kate. >> sean: we have to run. >> he is promoting america's. >> sean: we have to run. >> freedom for anybody except islam. >> sean: coming up next, we remember the lives lost 11 years ago, september 11, america a mayor rudy guiliani will be here next. >> announcer: with nothing but his computer, an identity thief is able to use your information to open a bank account in order to make your money his money.

>> scripture tells us, doubt be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. there is no better way to honor the best in those who died than by discovering the best in ourselves. this anniversary allows us to renew our faith that even the darkest night gives way to a brighter dawn. >> sean: president obama speaking in a memorial ceremony at the pentagon earlier this morning, as the nation mourns and remembers thousands who lost their lives 11 years ago today,
6:54pm
a day that will forever live in infamy, when america was attacked by forces of evil. joining me to remember that trangic day, september 11, 2001, america's mayor, rudy guiliani. this is not political, but your leadership during that time was amazing. i remember moments where you said, hey, we have to keep living, when you went on letterman. when he said to you, can we laugh again? those were important moments for the country. sent a strong message. >> i had tremendous support. tonight, after i leave you, vidinner with a hundred people who were with me and helped me, got me through t. we get together every september 11 and just remember people we lost. i thank them for all the support they gave me. i wouldn't have got through it by myself. when i was knighted by keen elizabeth, i said to her that i stood on the shoulders of giants and i was getting knighted for them. it was really true.
6:55pm
hitremendous people. >> sean: well, it was -- you know what my fear is -- this is my greatest fear. look at what is happening, as mubarak was being thrown under the bus by president obama -- i am not trying to get political -- i think we are watching egypt, middle-east and africa and the muslim brotherhood, i think we are watching the rise of radical islamists. i fear, you listen to reuters, they were quoting that flack flag says there is no god but allah and al qaeda is its messenger. >> that speech that president obama gave in cairo, might be looked back on as that was the wrong message to send. the reality is that -- we had a good handle -- what was really going on inside egypt and what is going on -- we don't have a handle inside syria. we can't get russia to help us. we can't get china to help us, even though we reset our relationship with russia, which
6:56pm
is kindave joke. you know, all of that worries me. but none of it as much as iran. all the rest of it, i think we handle. we cannot handle iran having nuclear weapons. >> sean: every indication is that it is close. >> it is not just lobbing missiles into israel or saudi arabia. it is their handing off nuclear material to the terrorist who is are presentlily in an ongoing relationship and giving arms to. if they are giving them arms, it's easy to sneak in nuclear material and have them set up a dirty bomb to paris, los angeles and lie about it, which they do as a matter of course, anyway. >> sean: we see the images of 11 years ago today, and then i am thinking, all right, how often have we heard that the radical extremists want to wipe israel off the map. they keep thumbing their nose at world opinion, pursuing nuclear weapons. can we one day wake up in the holocaust that their stated
6:57pm
desire is true? >> i think have you to take them seriously. we didn't take them seriously enough before september 11. osama bin laden declared war on us and kale killed our sailors on the cole and we didn't retaliate. the first trade center adispace we had a criminal proceeding. he declared war on us and we didn't pick up that there was a war. the more we go into a shell of denial, the more danger we are in. you know, this whole idea that we don't want to call it a war on terror. that's irrelevant. it is their war against us. >> sean: has been for 30 years! what i see today, it's still going on. >> look at the pictures that have you on the screen, of course, it is going on. we don't get into the schools all over the middle-east -- children are being taught to kill jewish people, kill americans. >> sean: why would the president, then, decline prime minister netanyahu's request for a meeting because he says, i might have to be in ohio campaigning. that's what they said today. >> i mean, it's apparently par
6:58pm
for the course for the president. he has cancelled half of his national security briefings, that's unheard of. he has a surrogate get national security briefings. i have no idea, why did they take jerusalem out of the cal capitol of israel in the democratic platform and boo god. why did the president write a letter to the ayatollah, begging him to negotiate? what planet are you living on. >> sean: when you think back on 9/11, what memory stands out the most in your mind? that day? >> the memory of a man throwing him from the 101st floor. i had been told that people were throwing themselves out of the building-- saw this. >> i looked up and i saw debris. i thought maybe the report was edgeageerated or -- all of a sudden, i saw this man and i am sure i cooperate see his face, but i thought i saw him with
6:59pm
this indecision and he threw himself down 100 stories. >> sean: obviously, burning, fire. >> when he jumped, as soon as he jumped, a big flame shot out of the -- behind him. boy, we are into something way beyond anything that happened before. having lived through it and watched a lot of people die during this, this was a battle. this was an act of war. this was like -- this was like being bombed during the second world war, in some case, even worse. these two big buildings, hit by buildings, big cloud in the street for hours and hours, people hit with debris. these people came here. they attacked us because they are not -- they are not confused -- we are confused. they are not confused. >> sean: i'm not confused. you are not confused. >> i am not. they are at war with us. i don't see that we have much of a choice. >> sean: mr. mayor, thank you. thank you for all you did in the
